another sneak peak

Heres another sneak peak of something from the New Mini Catalogue thats out in less than a week now!!!!!
Its the new fabulous Extra-Large Two-Step Bird punch. I've punched the body in Close to Coca, the wings in Chocolate Chip and the branch in Certainly Celery and its goes lovely with this little birdhouse template that I found out their in Blogland.

Easter Bunnies

I just loved these little bunnie boxes that were demonstrated at our regional training event last weekend.

My daughter loved them so much that she talked me into making these for her friends at school (another 6 to make). I've used the beautiful new Bride designer papers along with matching cardstock and ribbons. the bunnies them selves where made with punches and adding a half pearl from the Pretties kit

Pamper Evening

On Thursday evening I did my very first public demonstration at a local National Childbirth Trust (NCT) Pamper Evening........ these are the latest craze for fundraising events!!

I had a fab time explaining what Stampin' Up! is all about and even managed to persuade a few ladies to have a go themselves and make a book mark, for them to use in their "Me" time! One mum to be said "I'm going to pop this in my baby journal" we used the gorgeous Bella Blue DSP, Flight of a Butterfly Stamp set,and its matching punch along with some "fairy dust" (Dazzling Diamonds) to their wings (which doen't show in the photograph).

Sneak peak..............

Wow what can I say the new Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! has loads of lovelly new treasures in it......... pictured below is a mini tote bag and some notelets made using some of the goodies from it.

I've used my favourite colours at the moment ~ Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Pale plum and the NEW Vintage Vogue Stampset, Very Vintage Roller and one of their NEW punches Two Step Bird.

I'm off to play with some more of the goodies that I manged to pre order and will upload as soon as I get a chance.

Remember that you can only order the goods from the Mini Catalogue from the 1st of April until 30th September....... sadly some of the items will NOT be making it in to the next Ideas Book and Catalogue for 2010/2011.

If you interested in ordering or would like to host a Workshop and earn your self some extra crafting goodies then send me an email to

Vicki was very kind and drove me to the crop we go to in Golden Green. It was great to get out of the house for a little while..... and it gave the girls something to laugh about......Well my footwear at least!!

After the chatting I managed to actually do 2 layouts minus the titles and journaling.... which will get done some time in the future!!!!!!!!! ( I bet I'm not the only one who has a pile that just need those finishing touches either).

The layout and papers are from one of the Totalpaper crafts monthly kits and the photograph is of my youngest Heidi taken 2 years ago playing around in the bar on holiday.

Like my fancy new shoes????????????

Here's a picture of my lovelly new Sunday Best shoes from the NHS.........LOL

As some of you may know I was having problems with in~growing toe nails...which is VERY painful and decidied to take the consultants advice and have them dealt with......

Its great I've been given a great excuse to sit on my " bum" and craft for the next few days well as long as I keep my feet elevated. Its great to get out of the cooking and other domestic chores for a while.

Perfect Pairs....................

I just love the way that Stampin' Up! punches work so well with their stampsets........ And for the Month of March Stampin' Up! have a spring promotion when you buy both the Stampset and Matching Punch.

Plus you can get a sneak peak of the New Heart Punch that matches the hearts in the Simply Said Stampset....which is only avaliable whilst stocks last.........but not to worry it will be back but not until the new Ideas Book and Catalogue is out in September of this year 2010/2011.

I'll be posting my order real soon as I really dont want to miss out on that beautiful heart punch... so if you can't wait until next time around then contact via email or phone ASAP.......

Dazzling Diamonds.........get together!!

On Saturday we had our 2nd team meeting ......... to start the session Shaz decided to do some ice breaker activities..... the first was a treasure hunt to find SU supplies around the house the second was to make a card with the items we found in pairs with one hand tied up (meaning that one person could use their right and the other their left ).....but unfortunately only 3 of us managed to make it......... we deceided that we would continue but with an extra twist... The 3rd person would make the 2nd card blindfolded under the guidance of the other two........
I dont think that I did tooo bad either!!!!!!!!!!!
I cant tell you all of the things that we discussed but 2 really important dates for you to note down in your dairys and to watch out for further details of are 23rd May 2010 ~ Sincerely Yours Craft Show, Biggin Hill and 19th June 2010 ~ Stamparama with the Dazzling Diamonds Team, New Addington........
